Thanks to whoever spotlighted this!

Also, in case anyone's wondering about the selection of books on here, these are some of my favorites. This is something I've only realized in retrospect and as such, some of the answers are kinda obscure. That being said, I have no plans on changing this quiz--I love sharing books with people, and if this quiz makes you pick up a book you haven't read before, that makes me more than happy!

Thanks for this. It's good to have more literature quizzes that aren't Harry Potter!

Thanks! And I agree--I love JetPunk but this site is often a bit light on literature (besides Harry Potter of course).
